My core competencies in training and organizational development have allowed me to enhance my organizational skills and maximize my eye for details. These skills have also allowed me to venture further into events management for the same company for 5 consecutive years. I am seeking opportunities in any of these areas, including administrative duties that lead up to these opportunities.

As a medical field technical writer, I have written Standard Operating Procedures, User Reference documents, various handbooks, manuals, memos, and newsletters, as well as a variety of e-learning courses. I am comfortable using a variety of programs to handle these tasks- Microsoft Office Suite 2007 and 2010, various Adobe programs, and Lectora course development software. I also hold a Masters in Training and Performance Improvement, so I am extremely interested in opportunities to utilize writing for various e-learning projects, such as assisting in the development and writing of content for courses, developing needs assessments, surveys, curriculum development, and any performance and training related projects. In addition, I am working on a PhD program in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, so am available for assistance with multicultural/international team building and development, cross-cultural communication, diversity, and performance assessment development as well. In the past several years, I have written courses and documentation for training workshops delivered internationally for non-native English speakers, and have facilitated courses in public speaking, cross-cultural communication, and team building. I have had an opportunity to develop and continue to improve an international workshop through project management, excellent leadership skills, and global understanding. My current work is primarily internal consulting/training delivery/instructional design where I can utilize my ten years of experience in areas of performance assessment, instructional design, and training facilitation.
